Conservation image Gels Cleaning Research (1998–2003)
A project of the Getty Conservation Institute

Private Conservator Chris Stavroudis applies a gel formulation to a section of a painting as part of a weeklong cleaning experiment at CSUN in November 1998 (see Component One). The painting, which had been vandalized, was donated to the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation for research purposes. Photo Dusan Stulik.
